Notes and Editorial Reviews
Heppner is extraordinary, giving a solidly expansive performance of poise and breadth. The voice is both strong and youthful, and he knows what he is singing about. Heppner's sense of phrasing, allied with his commanding voice, does a lot to bring the difficult character of Lohengrin to life, and the third act is clearly his.

-- Patrick J. Smith, Opera News [12/9/1995]
